Fruticose lichen. Podetia usually small, often about 1cm in height, cylindrical, blunt-tipped, unbranched or, at most, sparsely branched, grey, podetial surface powdery-sorediate, often with a few small squamules below; basal squamules relatively small, incised, grey, becoming grey-green when damp; apothecia red, button-like on the tips of the podetia. Widespread and locally common but easily overlooked on damp stumps and tree-bases, often with C. coniocraea, and on wooden fence-posts.
Spotted on a granite rock wall.
